When LCD Soundsystem said their ‘Long Goodbye’ in 2011, the band filled Madison Square Garden for the emotional performance. Now, almost five years to the day, LCD will return to New York once more. Already announced to headline Panorama Festival in July, the band will hit Webster Hall for two nights of musical mayhem, this Sunday March 27th and Monday March 28th.These mark the band’s first shows in five years, though the group is slated to perform at a number of summer festivals, including Coachella and Bonnaroo. While MSG holds roughly 18,000 people, Webster Hall’s main stage has a capacity of 1,500 – and you can bet that it will be a packed house.To gain entry to the shows, dubbed “Back From The Dead,” fans can enter a lottery for tickets. Best of luck to everyone who enters!
